We Help Adults, Teens & Kids Heal from Self-Harm Tendencies
Our program knows how to help you or a loved one to heal from Self-Harm, a condition in which a person deliberately causes injury to himself or herself, more than only in the form of cutting, at times by burning, punching, head banging, or breaking their own bones. It can also be characterized by participation in high-risk activities.
Self-Harm (also known as self-abuse, self-mutilation, or self-injury) can be the way in which a person can express feelings he or she cannot put into words. Some individuals divert from painful emotions or gain power over their own body if he or she feels they can’t control anything else in their life. It is also a cry for help.
Many who suffer from Self-Harm report some type of childhood abuse (sexual or physical), and almost all say they were discouraged from showing emotions. Self-Abuse is not generally seen as a cry for help, since it is usually done in secret and works to hide the actions and emotions that lead to it. Your loved one may feel alone or empty, frightened by the thought of intimate relationships.
Treating Self-Harm in Adults, Teens, and Children
Because Self-Injury may be linked to a variety of mental disorders like depression or eating disorders, it is especially necessary to properly diagnose yourself or your self-harming loved one.
There is not a single treatment approved for this disorder, but a myriad of options, such as different types of therapy. Treatment might include helping you to understand destructive thoughts and behaviors, gaining skills in developing outside relationships, and mindfulness-based therapies (which help them to live in the present and properly construe the behaviors of those around).
